Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips

An empty Wembley stadium will play host for this year’s FA Cup final as Arsenal and Chelsea battle for silverware, London supremacy and - in the Gunner’s case – European football.

It would not be an understatement to say that this has been a disappointing season for Arsenal.

Missing out on the top four would normally be a good reason for fans to feel frustrated however, finishing eighth and missing out on Europa League is simply a catastrophe for the Gunners.

Despite this, a lot could change this Saturday should Mikel Arteta’s men lift the FA Cup for a record 14th time. A win would not only secure some silverware for the Gunners but it would also guarantee them Europa League football.

Looking at the betting, we can see that the bookmakers are behind Chelsea having priced them as favourites at 23/20. Arsenal meanwhile, are available at 23/10.

It’s not that long ago since we have seen both these clubs compete in a cup final. One year ago, the two sides met in the Europa League showpiece which was decisively won 4-1 by Chelsea.

The Blues have done well against their London rivals in recent years. Frank Lampard's men have won three from their last five head to head encounters. Their last game, however, ended in a 2-2 draw as a ten-man Arsenal rescued a point in the final minutes.

With both teams in similar form and both needing to win this final we could be in for another close game.

Arsenal have won three of their last four games which includes victories over Liverpool and Manchester City. Chelsea have also picked up three wins from their last five games and their run also includes impressive wins over Manchester United and Wolves.

Frank Lampard would love to win his first piece of silverware as a Chelsea manager - to do it against Arsenal would make it even sweeter - however, it’s the Gunners who have more to lose here with European football at stake.

With that in mind, our recommendation is to back the North London side at the price of 23/10.

Arsenal v Chelsea

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double helps Arsenal lift FA Cup

    Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang once again lit up Wembley as his brace ensured FA Cup final victory over 10-man Chelsea.

    The striker equalised with a penalty he had won himself to cancel out Christian Pulisic’s early opener.

    Chelsea then lost Cesar Azpilicueta and Pulisic to injury before Aubameyang brilliantly added his second to secure a 2-1 victory and then lifted a record 14th FA Cup for the Gunners.

    Chelsea then had Mateo Kovacic sent off as they chased the game, the Croatia international picking up two bookings, both for fouls on Granit Xhaka with the second a controversial call from referee Anthony Taylor.

    Aubameyang’s future at Arsenal remains in doubt as he has less than a year to run on his contract, but after downing Manchester City with two goals in the semi-final, he again showed his importance to Mikel Arteta’s side.

    For Arteta, this was a first piece of silverware in a managerial career that only began in December and sees Arsenal qualify for the Europa League next season.

    Aubameyang wasted the first chance of the final, heading wide when picked out in the box by Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

    Chelsea had their own opening moments later, Xhaka robbed of the ball and Mason Mount’s curling effort forcing Emiliano Martinez into an early save.

    But there was nothing the Arsenal goalkeeper could do from the next Chelsea attack as Pulisic struck.

    Mount broke into the penalty area and squared to Olivier Giroud, the former Arsenal man flicking the ball into the path of Pulisic, who skipped past the challenge of Kieran Tierney to become the first United States international to score in an FA Cup final.

    Nicolas Pepe thought he had curled in a marvellous equaliser but his celebrations were cut short as Aubameyang had strayed offside in the build-up.

    However, just seconds later and Aubameyang was played in over the top, racing clear of Azpilicueta before being hauled back by the Chelsea skipper.

    Taylor opted to only caution Azpilicueta but the penalty stood following a short VAR check and Aubameyang made no mistake from the spot.

    Azpilicueta would last less than five minutes longer, forced off with an injury as he made way for Andreas Christensen.

    Arsenal dominated the remainder of the first half without managing to test Willy Caballero in the Chelsea goal.

    After the break, Pulisic broke forward looking to add his second of the afternoon but instead was soon going the same way as his captain, limping off with a hamstring injury after shooting wide.

    Pedro entered the fray in his place as Chelsea started to wrestle back control of the contest.

    That was until Aubameyang struck once again.

    Hector Bellerin burst forward down the right and Christensen’s heavy challenge saw the ball break to Pepe, his pass picked up by Aubameyang who turned on to his preferred left foot to lift the ball over Caballero.

    Chelsea’s task was made all the more difficult as Mateo Kovacic was sent off, shown his second yellow card for a foul on Granit Xhaka just six minutes after they had lost their lead.

    While Arteta could toast his first trophy, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard ultimately saw his side come up short.

    He threw on Ross Barkley, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi despite being a man light but there was to be no comeback.

    Chelsea had beaten Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final last season but this would go the other way, due in no small part to the clinical Aubameyang, whose future Arteta will want sorted as soon as possible.

    Arsenal goalkeeper Martinez fought back tears after finally taking his chance in the first team.

    He said on BBC One: “When we started losing, everything looked against us, but.. I can’t really talk.

    Match-winner Aubameyang felt it had been a collective team effort.

    The striker said: “We are all happy. He (manager Mikel Arteta) deserves this win. He has done a great job – we are all happy to have him on board.”
